Status Box Remains at 99%

Completes a printing job. Ejects perfectly printed page. Always shows 99% never 100% complete on print status box. Consequently the print icon remains on the lower tool bar and the printer will not accept another request.

Re: Status Box Remains at 99%

Try uninstalling then re-installing the drivers. Also if you are using Windows Vista you may need to go to the printer manufacturers website and download Vista drivers if you are running XP drivers for the printer.

I replaced the cartridge of my hp psc 1401, copied the test page that was automatically printed, but now I can't print anything. Copying works OK. I don't get an error message or blinking lights on...

what is the status of print job in the queue? whether it is showing printing or no status in the windows.
if the status is printing you delete all the print jobs and switch off and on .then try print something. if no status is there in the windows then you check whether the printer is off line .try make it online by right click on the printer icon then click on the use printer online.

My HP Laserjet 2840 is showing "replace supplies" in the display. There are 5 box/cylendar's that appear in the display and the last one has a solid black box box in it. I was able to go thru...

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
The low ink could definitely be the problem thats prompting the error. To begin troubleshooting print the supply status page and confirm the state of the various supplies. Follow the steps below:
Supplies Status page The Supplies Status page lists the remaining life of the HP print cartridges and the HP imaging drums. It also lists the estimated pages remaining, number of pages printed, and other supplies information. You can print a Supplies Status page from the device or the HP Toolbox. To print from the device, complete the following steps. 1. On the control panel menu, press MENU. 2. Use the button to select Reports, and then press ENTER 3. Use the button to select Supplies Status, and then press ENTER. Note Supplies information is also available through the HP Toolbox.
This page illustrates conditions of consumables for Toner Cartridges, Image Drums, Image Transfer Kits, and Fuser Kits. It also provides ordering information and methods for disposing of or recycling used supplies.
Supplies information is also available through the HP Toolbox.
Areas of Supply Status Page: 1. Print-cartridge area. This area contains a section for each of the print cartridges and provides information about HP print cartridges. This information includes the part number for each print cartridge, whether each print cartridge is low, and the life remaining for each print cartridge expressed as a percentage, as a graphic, and as the estimated number of pages remaining. This information might not be provided for non- HP supplies. In some cases, if a non-HP supply is installed, an alert message appears instead. 2. Imaging-drum area. This area contains the same information for the imaging drum that the print-cartridge area provides for the print cartridges. 3. Warranty Note. This section contains information about how the device warranty is affected when you use non-HP supplies. It also requests that you call the HP fraud hotline if a supply that is being detected as a non-HP supply was sold to you as a genuine HP supply. (See HP fraud hotline.) 4. Ordering Information. This section contains basic information about how to order new HP supplies. See Checking status and ordering supplies. 5. Recycling Information. This section contains a link to the website that you can visit for information about recycling. See Replacing and recycling supplies.

How can I get a printout of the number of copies printed on my 1320?

Suggest the following as you are not able to connect through the tool box

a. press Go (the green button) for five seconds when the printer is in the ready state.

this will print the configuration page and then the supplies status page for the current toner in the printer.

The Supplies Status page provides information about the print cartridge that is installed in the printer, the amount of toner left in the print cartridge, and the number of pages and print jobs that have been processed. The Supplies Status page automatically prints when a Configuration page is printed from the control panel.

hope that helps
